Alcohol By Volume Guide

  • 10%
  • 16+%
Most wine ranges from 10-16% alcohol by volume. Some varietals tend to have higher (for example Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon) or lower alcohol levels (Pinot Noir and many white varietals), but there is always some variation from producer to producer. Some wine falls outside of this range, for instance Port weighs in closer to 20%, while Muscat and Riesling are usually a bit below 10%.

Winemaker's Notes

The Omrah Sauvignon is a 50/50 blend from our own Mount Barker vineyard, Rosetta, harvested at 21.3 brix and Akehurst vineyard, in Pemberton, harvested slightly riper at 23.2 brix. Both vineyards share similar viticultural practices, deep gravelly loam soils; with vines vertically shoot positioned and irrigated for healthy vine growth. Yield of both vineyards averaged 8.2 tonne/hectare.

Punchy greengage plums, lantana and gooseberries aromas with an undercurrent of lemon curd. A supple yet lithe palate with a fine core of crunchy acid running the length of the palate with loads of mouth watering, vibrant fruit flavours. A harmonious wine with a clean finish and delicious lingering flavours. A very savvy savvie. Enjoy now.

Critical Acclaim

"Bright and tangy, with tart lime and green berry flavors, remaining vibrant through the long finish. This wants seafood."
